Wood is not flat and square. Then I try to put some organic waves in this small cabinet.

Check this video to view how the curve was done.

And thanks to Jory Brigham for the inspiration.

Tres Cool. I like it a lot. Also a very nice clamp for the workbench.

Ok this piece is stunning . Absoutely stunning. And i would lve some dimensions as well. Remember imitation is the best form of flattery! HOWEVER…...what is that long vise you had those panels in? That was impressive to say the least! Thanks for your post and keep up the great work!

You found a distinctly pleasing combination and contrast of contours and textures. Thanks for sharing.

Fantastic. Inspiring.

Excellent videos on your site.

I, too love the lateral release that you built. It seems easier and move versatile than dogs.

I love the waves. I’m looking for a good project now to learn this technique. What kind of grit do you have on your angle grinder and then on your festool sander? Thanks for posting.

Boris, What a great piece. The drawer fronts really grab your attention and set it off visually. What a great job. Thx for sharing…..
